Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Can you provide me a bit more information? Did this sale of the property by the LLC occur after the death of the single member? Was this a revocable living trust that became irrevocable upon the death of the single member? Or, was it set up as an irrevocable trust while the single member was alive? The property was owned by the LLC when it was sold, correct? Thanks.
